the hotel is part of a hotel chain, and i find it the most convenient outlet of all- it is opposite the kao hsiung train station and mrt, a bus interchange and the coaches to kenting departs from the entrance of the hotel.
there's refreshment available 24/7, so no worries about being hungry in the middle of the night. breakfast is served til 1.30pm- that's the latest timing of all hotels i've ever stayed so far. staff at the breakfast/refreshment place are friendly. front desk crew are polite.
room is clean and you'll have to let the front desk know that you need your room to be cleaned. otherwise they will not go into your room. room comes with the most comprehensive set of toiletries i've ever seen as well- shampoo, conditioner, bath gel, facial wash, body lotion, shaving lotion, tooth brush, tooth paste, dental floss, comb, shower cap, razor.
there's a washing machine + dryer available on the top floor. that's something people who travel light or have traveled for a long period of time will appreciate.
something about the room- it stinks in the middle of the night because the smell of the sewage flows backwards up the piping. i suspect it is a structural issue, since the hotel is actually one that's been renovated from another very old hotel. the smell will be gone during the day, so what i did was just covered up all the holes in the toilet as much as possible, or better still, close the toilet door.
sound proofing is not very good, you can hear the conversations in the rooms when you're in the corridor. but between rooms wise, you can't hear a thing. so just don't shout your secrets across the room when you're in there and you'll be fine. stayed in a corner room, so wasn't disturbed much. but i didn't get much of a view though, but that didn't bother me much.
